Heaven in a Wildflower

Looking down inside a Blue Chicory Wildflower

A closer look :)

To see the world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wildflower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.

-  William Blake

Beautiful, I don't think I've ever seen Chicory. Perhaps it doesn't grow, here, in the West.

Chicory is the most beautiful blue! I like seeing it on the roadsides and in the fields. Chicory root was sometimes used as a substitute for coffee, so it is useful as well as pretty.

That blue color is gorgeous. We have lots of Chicory around here, and it is beginning to fade. Another sign summer is waning...

Is this the wild chicory that grows along the roads? We have a lot of it in bloom here in Ohio where I live.

Well, I went over and joined Luiz Santilli Junior's flowers group and planted some flowers and they are already in bloom at my new blog, Thunder Maker.

It looks like I am going to have to try and catch up with everyone. Your flowers are beautiful.
